Didier Deschamps will not leave ‘Les Bleus’ even after the disappointing elimination at Euro 2020, as the French Football Federation with president Noel Le Graet have confirmed him as coach.
Zinedine Zidane was seen as the favorite to replace Deschamps, but will have to wait to take over France.
Zidane himself had said that working in France is his dream country after leaving Real Madrid at the end of the 2020/21 season.
Le Graet spoke for ‘Le Figaro’ and made it clear that Deschamps will have the chance to make up for France’s poor showing at Euro 2020.
“The answer is yes,” Le Graet replied when asked if Deschamps would continue to lead France to the 2022 World Cup.
“We met on Wednesday and resolved it in three minutes. His desire to continue is strong as well as mine. “There was no debate,” he said.
